I have a pimple like growth on the skin surface of my left

Resolved Question:

I have a pimple like growth on the skin surface of my left testicle. it looks like a pink raised pimple, 1/16th inch high maybe. It has always been a bit sensitive but looked normal rather than raised, pink and exceedingly sensitive.It has grown within the past 3 months. it is not hard but pliable and there is no mass or hard lump underneath. I am concerned it could be some kind of testicular cancer??? As I mentioned it is on my testicles skin surface only not attached to a growth on or in my testicle.

I don't have insurance right now and I am very concerned that this could be cancerous????
